Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2014-90: The Problem Is Not Immigration, part 1 of 2

The problem is not immigration.  The problem is educators, judges and the media.

I am in the breakfast room of a Hampton Inn.  Hampton Inn is the lowest level of accommodation that my wife will now settle for.  They are not the Ritz Carleton but they are a long way from Motel 6.  Poor people do not stop at Hampton Inn. 

Having said that I have noticed that I am in a small minority when it comes to speaking English.  I am hearing Arabic, Asian languages and of course Spanish.  These people are well dressed, well mannered and definitely not poor.  I would guess that most were born in other countries.  That is fine.  America was built on people coming from other countries.  America is not an ethnic group but an idea.  It is a philosophy, not a phenotype. 

So let me repeat.  The problem is not immigration.  The problem is educators, judges and the media.

Notice I did not say education, justice and TV.  Although we have plenty of educators we have little educating going on.  Most of it is brainwashing, babysitting and entertainment.  Although we have plenty of judges we have little justice being handed down.  Most of what judges do is advancing a political agenda to bring about the utopian nanny state.  Although we have lots of TV programing there is little worth watching.

The problem is not immigration.
